The plurality of flow channels 1270-1282 comprise a plurality of flow channels 1190.
Referring to FIGS. 5, 6, 11, 12 and 20, the apertures 712, 714, 716, 718, 720, 722, 724 in the first peripheral wall 610 of the frame member 180 fluidly communicate with a first end of the flow channels 1270, 1272, 1274, 1276, 1278, 1280, 1282, respectively. Further, the apertures 812, 714, 816, 818, 820, 822, 824 in the second peripheral wall 620 of the frame member 180 fluidly communicate with a second end of the flow channels 1270, 1272, 1274, 1276, 1278, 1280, 1282, respectively.
